    Please be more specific. For example, what version of the database?

    Oracle does not provide database patches other than through the Oracle support portal for which you require a paid subscription and license. Also keep in mind that Oracle database changed the patching strategy as of 11.2.0.2 to be out-of-place patching by default. Previously, a patch set was supposed to be downloaded and installed into an existing ORACLE_HOME. Patch sets are now full releases that need to be installed into their own directory.

    And don't confuse CPU with PSU and SPU, but neither are available without a paid license.
